Good to know that chivalry isn't dead. Forget broken ribs ;w; Nothing compared to a broken heart...

They ALWAYS fall. Always. When people are being chased by impending doom, you can GUARANTEE that at least one of them will trip over thin air, and just lie there in wait to be engulged by (in this case) angry buggy death.

That said if anyone had grabbed onto my bag whilst I was running away from something I'da likely kicked 'em in the kidneys before leaving them in the dust.

See y'all soon.

George deserves it Dude, if someone did that to me, and I didn't know them well enough to give a rats behind, I would do the same thing Atty did. If they can't carry their own weight, then ditch them. =/

Atticus was a jerk for doing that. If she survives, he deserves everything he will get.

However, George isn't addicted to smoking. She should have been able to outrun him any day of the week even after running all day. Furthermore, she apparently doesn't have the will to live and keep running about 20 or so more yards to the finish line. I am supremely disappointed in her.

Will we see George in a sparkly panel with Shoujo bubbles if she lets her hair down? Atty will prolly blush a bit at the un-expected cuteness of George...

Couple things... (A) YAY I'M NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO SCREAMS "WAGH!" WHEN SURPRISED OR STARTLED!

(B) $5 bucks says he realizes he can't leave her there, and goes back to save her. It's cliche and contrived, I know, and knowing this comic, it might lose me 5 bucks, but I have a feeling....

the problem with many shows is that they tend to fall without a reason, or there happens to be a pebble placed perfectly, lurking, lying in wait for some unsuspecting victim.

So at least you came up with a good reason for her to fall. :)

When my dad makes me walk with him, sometimes when I get close enough to him, I'll grab him, and he'll shake me off. But he shouldn't be going so fast if it's supposed to just be a walk. v_v

I hope Atty decides that he can't just leave her there. I like her - and I still don't know the story behind her name.
But... why did she wait until she was almost out before trying to tag along?

George has a huge crush on Atticus. Being in a life-threatening situation, she cared less about her SURVIVAL and more about Atticus SAVING her. F-ing women.

Also as ohcrud pointed out, Atticus is blushing. Maybe he knows subconsciously she's a girl, or he's embarrassed that someone is trying to rely on him for once. Whatever the case, he's physically and emotionally weak right now, and he does have a history of saving things (see: Feraligatr vs Dragonthing) so any kind of guilt from himself, from her, or from DT will cause him to go save her.

Or, you know, we might see an anticlimactic subversion where he's panting and catching his breath inside the exit, and then karma begins to set in.
